Online Resources

The Dane County Historical Society offers many online resources. These include:

  • Our Online Catalog.
  • Tychoberahn, the yearbook from Madison’s Central High School. 
  •  The Madison Mirror, the newsletter from Madison’s Central High School.
  • Selected records from The Madison Mozart Club.

Genealogists seeking specific family or ancestor information will not usually find indexed family information in our catalog. Instead we generally refer researchers to the Dane County Register of DeedsThe Dane County Register of Deeds has records for births, deaths, and marriages, as well as land records specific to Dane County.  Nevertheless, the Otto Schroeder Archives and Records Center is home to several Dane County plat maps, atlases, and indexes, so we do still welcome interested researchers to take a look.

Here are links to some Dane County maps, that may be of some interest.
